Crispy Coated Baked Haddock with Grape Tomatoes

Friday, April 1, 2011
This Crispy Coated Baked Haddock with Grape Tomatoes is one of the easiest one pan meals and I love this crunchy flavorful topping.

The grape tomatoes are covered in cheese and baked with lots of flavors and this fish is tender and moist with a delicate flavor.

I just love making this for friends and family dinners it's really colorful on a bed of pasta with tomatoes added for a side dish.

This coating is with flour and breadcrumbs flavored perfectly for making this a super crispy coated fish.

You can add any other side dish as this fish is great on a bed of spinach or another green if you want to cut some carbs.

If you can't find haddock in your area try some of our many suggestions below to substitute like cod, halibut or another white fish you prefer.

Use any Seafood

I have made this recipe with just about every kind of fish but our favorite is haddock which is a mild white fish found in the North Atlantic.

If you want to substitute Mahi Mahi or another firm fish this recipe is very versatile.

Our third favorite fish to make this dish with is salmon, the coating gets nice and browned with the additional oil from salmon, and delicious

The tomatoes are covered in crispy cheese as this is baked and so good plus you can even smother this with shredded provolone, mozzarella or Parmesan in long shreds.

  6. The rigatoni and the Italian-flavored bread crumbs are curious choices. I find that flavoring your own bread crumbs is more satisfying. Why not linguini? Please don't take offense. If people don't ever question anything, what's the point? Care to have a conversation about this? Write me at Cheers.
